Teejay’s summer blockbuster hit Drift continues its winning ways on the Billboard R&B airplay charts.

Drift, produced by DJ Mac/Panda/Top Braff Music, was released internationally by Warner Music after Teejay signed a deal with the US-based label last year.

Interestingly, there are three videos for the song currently making moves on social media. The original Drift now stands at 16 millions views on YouTube since it was uploaded 7 months ago.

A remix featuring Afrobeats artiste DaVido, released three weeks ago, has racked up more than 1.1 million views, while another remix featuring rapper French Montana has 616,000 views since it was released two weeks ago.

On R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, Drift cruises from #43 to #40, while on Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, the song steps up from #32 to #29 to arrive at a new peak in its 9th week on the chart.

Over on Rhythmic Top 40, Drift inches up from #34 to #3 in its tenth week. The song rose as far as #30 a few weeks ago.

Moving now to the Billboard Reggae Albums chart, there isn’t much activity as most titles retain their places from a week ago.

Bob Marley and the Wailers continues dominance in the #1 spot with Legend clocking 208 non-consecutive weeks.

Shaggy’s Best of Shaggy: The Boombastic Collection is holding firm at #2, likewise Sean Paul’s Dutty Classics Collection and Dutty Rock at #4 and #5 respectively.

Greatest Hits by UB40 is steady at #5, while World on Fire, Set in Stone and Wisdom all by Stick Figure are #6, #7, and #8 respectively.

Masicka’s Generation of Kings, which made a splash five weeks ago when it entered and peaked at #2, has fallen to #9.

MOBO nominee Byron Messia is a non-mover at #10 with No Love.

Let’s now take a look at regional charts.
